    Just had a chance to watch match video of MD final...
    Ahsan played really "buas" (he's practically everywhere in the court!) And while he's not raining smashes a la FHF or JJS, he compensated it by good placings which made KOR pair (especially Ko! :p) found it really hard to return his smashes.
    While Hendra's play on the net, his interception etc... It's like he's saying, "This is what will happen when I get serious!!!" :eek:

    Oh, and Ko's playing really, really awkward also played a huge part on their defeat.

    Ahsan's performance on final remind me of Halim Haryanto! He smashes with whole body. But with more agility and front court domination!

    just watched the video on youtube, Ahsan was simply devastating both infront and behind....the Koreans has no answer to his smashes......has not seen such dominating performance from a player in the final......to sidetrack, it's interesting to note that he smashes differently from JJS and FHF....the head/neck muscle comes into play much more.

    Haha! All this talk of Ahsan. :) He played like a mad man, like someone insulted his family name or something. :p

    The way he smashed so violently I was afraid he was going to dislocate his shoulder or something. :eek:

    So, Hendra got different style of pair. Kido was smash raining master, while Ahsan is more to a one smash one kill.

    obviously ahsan was very nervous and did inconsistence shot in front of the court and ending with so many unforce errors... btw i think his new racket, Arc FB was not match with him... seem he always overswing the shuttle... maye too light or he still not find the timing of the racket... many of his smash able to return by the china players... also seem the smash was not as fast as at Msian Open recently... i think he better stick with NS9900... but Hendra show a cool play (he always seem cool all the time :cool:)

    Why would he changed his racket? he is still sponsored by YONEX. He should just stick with NS9900.

    I don't think it's because of racket. They are professional, they have trained before they played in the tournaments.
